> hey. let us know how it goes, please. my current 'treatment provider' is gung ho about some Vraylar. I'm afraid of EPS, TD, clamps down on those D2 receptors tight, like Fort Knox. LOL. :-)

I've been in two different hospitals where the majority of patients are on neuroleptics, and never once have I seen TD. It seems to be very rare nowadays.

EPS, well, cariprazine is one of the least likely antipsychotics to cause EPS.

Dysphoria, that is very rare too. I've only had dysphoria from methoxetamine, and I've tried most antidepressants and many neuroleptics.

In low doses, around 1.5--3 mg, cariprazine is slightly stimulating. I'd say 1.5 is better than 3 mg, but the difference is subtle, so I'm not sure.

All neuroleptics are dopamine antagonists, and yet, they have never worsened my anhedonia, and their effect on apathy (ie. motivation) is slight or non-existent. I don't know why. Intuitively, one would expect them to induce a syndrome of dopamine deficiency, ie. parkinsonism.
